    The Side dishes were okay from the bar- Could have been better. Seems like the choices were not as many as a normal Steakhouse. Staff was friendly and the value for the price was okay but again the overall side dish bar was lacking.

    Great experience. Very good restaurant but too expensive given the aged restaurant facilities. Not the best value overall.

    It was my friend’s birthday and we enjoyed the Premium Lunch menu. Our Gaucho was awesome and made sure we had selections that were closer to our favorite temperatures. We had a nice celebration.

    From the moment you step into Rei do Gado Brazilian Steakhouse, you're transported to a carnivore's paradise. Let me share my delightful experience: Mesquite Charcoal Magic: Rei do Gado boasts the only Mesquite charcoal grill in San Diego. The smoky aroma envelops you, promising an authentic churrascaria adventure. Premium meat selections take center stage. Each cut--whether it's picanha, filet mignon, or lamb--is a masterpiece. Buffet Extravaganza: Forget traditional menus; here, it's all about abundance. Appetizers, salads, and sides beckon from the buffet. Servers elegantly circulate, presenting skewers of succulent meats. The experience is both theatrical and mouthwatering. Seafood and Samba: Rei do Gado isn't just about beef. Seafood lovers rejoice--their lobster and shrimp offerings are divine for only $5 additional! Live entertainment sets the stage. Impeccable Service: Attentive servers ensure your glass is never empty. Their knowledge of the meats and genuine warmth elevate the dining experience. Conclusion: Rei do Gado isn't merely a restaurant; it's a celebration of fire, flavor, and camaraderie. Whether you're celebrating a special occasion or simply indulging, this Brazilian gem delivers.

    We took our nephew and his girlfriend for their shared 20th birthdays. He has been hearing about Rei do Gado for the better part of the last 10 years, and we finally got to take them. The service was excellent. The food was always amazing. As it was a Monday and we were in the beginning of the dinner period, there were very few people. The picanha is so amazing, all of their meats are fantastic. Sides are impressive. They hadn't started any chicken hearts, but upon finding out it was one of my favorites, our servers started a fresh skewer just for us. A really special night, and we thank all staff for their hard work and excellent service!

    Great service and the meats were delicious. Everything I tried from the salad bar and hot station was very good as well. All the servers were very attentive.

    We upgraded to the lobster and shrimp. so NOT worth it, even though it's only $5. The lobster was chewy, rubbery and made me sick. They gave us a total of 2 shrimp each and we had to ask several times to get more. When they brought more there were only a total of 9 shrimp. They have become incredibly stingy with the Brazillian Cheese Bread. We got a total of 8 rolls in multiple deliveries and had to ask several times for each delivery.
